Tattoo parlor run by Ga. police busts gangs
By Rusty Dornin and Wayne Drash
AUGUSTA, Georgia - Walking into the Colur Tyme Tattoo Parlor is a lot like walking into a head shop. One wall is lined with gang monikers and symbols, the other with bongs for smoking marijuana and other drugs -- one even shaped like a skull.
The Colur Tyme Tattoo Parlor was set up by authorities to get at the heart of gang members.
Only this head shop was a setup. It was a police front in a sting operation to bust gangs in this Georgia river city that most people associate with the Masters Tournament -- not violent thugs with high-powered weapons.
